MSRC's Courtney Bagge Wins Gold Award from UMMC

Dr. Courtney Bagge, co P.I. on the MSRC-funded study Looking for Suicide Warning Signs, has been awarded an Excellence in Research Award from the University of Mississippi Medical Center. The Gold Award is given the investigators who receive major amounts of extramural research funding for their work.

Dr. Bagge, along with Dr. Kenneth Conner, are studying Veterans and civilians who have recently attempted suicide to try and answer the question ‘Why today?' Clinicians have a variety of well-tested ways of identifying individuals who are at highest risk for suicide, but they have no such well-tested methods for determining when a particular individual is most likely to attempt suicide.
